    Presented by Cannabis at Work

    Day One Conference (8am-4:30pm): 

    Medical marijuana is a rapidly changing topic and has great implications for workplaces. Managing medical marijuana in the workplace is complex and requires specialized knowledge of medical cannabis, workplace policy and case law. Approaching recreational legalization adds another layer of challenges. This conference brings together a team of workplace experts to ensure you have the tools to mitigate risk in your organization.

    Day Two: Master Class (10am-3:30pm): 

    The Master Class is a small group, facilitated “working” class. SPACE IS LIMITED. In this workshop we will do a deep dive on your Drug & Alcohol Policy to ensure it is cannabis compliant. Participants will leave with a new draft of their policy. Participants will also leave with business processes for managing medical and recreational cannabis disclosures.

    During the working class, participants will (with the assistance of the facilitator):

    • Identify gaps in their current policy; deconstruct their Drug & Alcohol policy
    • Identify what needs to be added or changed in their current policy; rebuild draft policy
    • Create draft of internal procedures for managing cannabis disclosures
    • Create a communication and education plan; identify steps to roll out new policy

    You can register for day one, or day one and two combined. Live stream is only available on day one.

      Friday, April 20, 2018:  Megan Hunter - People with Complicated Operating Systems and How to Communicate with Them

      You dread 10-20% of your cases: they’re high-conflict, confusing and difficult. In these cases, your understanding of and skill level with people who have a Complicated Operating System—the most difficult, most toxic, most demanding, most frustrating and most damaging—is critical. BUT the most difficult “difficult” people: are not unpredictable are not beyond hope are not impossible are complicated. This seminar explains the invisible force field that drives “complicated people” and their Complicated Operating System. It will help you understand why they behave differently and how you can impact them positively to reach success.


      Who should Attend?

      Mediators, lawyers, physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, educators, case managers, clergy, pastoral care workers and other health care professionals wishing to enhance their knowledge and mediation skills in these emerging areas are encouraged to take these trainings.

      Presented by the International Institute for Restorative Practices

      This year we are very excited to be hosting our Spring 2018 conference in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This conference will have a keen focus on fostering restorative cultures in communities, organizations and systems.

      The field of restorative practices has achieved a high degree of visibility. Increasingly, the question is not whether restorative approaches are a good idea, but how these approaches can be deepened and sustained. Critical elements of change include skilled leadership, clear objectives, long-range vision, and a plan to achieve that vision. We want to hear about your experience and knowledge in this area. We welcome "outside-the-box" approaches and ideas from other disciplines that can help inform the field of restorative practices.

      We are seeking proposals for 50-minute and 100-minute breakout sessions. The conference is open to all topics related to the emerging social science of restorative practices, in a range of settings, including schools, indigenous communities, justice and workplaces. However, we strongly encourage session proposals that explore the theme of "Leading & Sustaining Change." 

      The deadline for submissions is JANUARY 8

      Submit a Proposal


      Location:

      The conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Toronto International Airport, located at 970 Dixon Rd., Etobicoke, ON M9W 1J9, Canada(not the Holiday Inn Toronto Airport East at 600 Dixon Rd).


      Date:

      April 30, 2018 to May 2, 2018
